Nouvelle École Innovatrice - Quebec
School rubber surfacing with smooth flooring Kayar, Grain, Nd/Uni
The New Innovative school in Greenfield Park, Quebec is a modern facility that combines two existing schools, to gather all grades from K-12 under one roof.
Designed by architectural firm Menkès Shooner Dagenais Letourneux, the contemporary architecture incorporates distinctive features that mirror the school’s modern teaching philosophy.
The facilities are spread over three-stores, oincluding classrooms, project rooms, common areas, a large library, a double gymnasium with a stage and a cooking workshop. The common areas are meant to foster collaborative work and community involvement.
A focal point, the central cafeteria is a large and bright space opened on two levels. The tiered benches installed there serves as both additional seating and a connection from the ground floor to the first floor.
Color is a key factor to the whole project and the architects made the best possible use of the variety of colors of the Artigo collection: the school features 11 different shades of our floorings, for a total surface of more than 4000 sqm, combining Kayar, Nd/Uni and Grain creating an inspiring, vibrant and modern atmosphere.
